Yesterday was a rest day. It was nice to sleep in.
Last night I slept quite restlessly, not really falling into a deep sleep until about 3AM. Never the less, I hauled my ass out of bed and headed into Craic.
It was a sprint workout:
5 rounds for time (excluding rest)
- 10 burpees
- 200 m rum
- Rest 5 minutes
A couple of months ago, I ran a Zombie 5K. An overzealous zombie threw me to the ground and I landed on my knee and hand on a rock. Turns out I have some soft tissue damage. Therefore when I do burpees, the impact seems to bother it and it bruises and swells up (even months after). Just when I think I can do burpees again, I do it … and the same thing happens. Today was no exception. I did the first two sets doing all 10 burpees, but then I felt the hand pain creep in. Then I tried landing on my fist for the 3rd set and doing less burpees. Still same issue (well, it was more of a balance issue). So for the 4th and 5th sets, I did sit-ups.
I love sprint workouts. When I did swimming, I was a sprinter.
Total Set Make-Up
- 10 burpees, sprint – 1:00
- 10 burpees, sprint – :54
- 7 burpees (first), sprint – :49
- 10 sit ups, sprint – :51
- 10 sit ups, spring – :51
Total time: 4:35
Overall, the running felt good. Burpees actually were good too (minus the hand business). We will see what tomorrow brings!
